范围和内容

Materials in this series cover BC NDP activities in support of elections held at the municipal, provincial, and federal level. Provincial elections covered by materials in the series include 1983, 1986, 1991, 1996, and 2001; federal elections covered include 1988, 1993, 1997, 2000, and 2004. A separate subseries contains a large amount of Party candidate biographies dating predominantly from the 1970's, which were kept at the Central Office for reuse and reference. Though polls can be found throughout the series, a large concentration of them were received grouped together, and have been kept as such in their own subseries. Similarly, records related to the one-time activity around the Fisher Commission on Electoral Redistribution (1986-1989) have been placed in their own subseries.

As a political party, elections represent a primary activity and concern of the BC NDP, in which the Provincial Secretary would play an important role. In several cases, former Provincial Secretaries would be hired by the Party as Campaign Managers. The Director of Communications would also play a key role during elections, often acting as a member or the chair of a Communications Subcommittee of the Elections Planning Committee (EPC; also referred to as the Strategy and Elections Planning Committee or SEPC) and overseeing advertising, public opinion, and party messaging in conjunction with the Campaign Manager. The EPC or SEPC, a standing committee, was generally made up of members of the Executive, as well as important contractors (such as advertisement producers) engaged by the party to assist in its elections efforts. The Director of Organization was often a member of the EPC as well, and oversaw the coordination of campaign organizers in each electoral district. The majority of the records found throughout these subseries have been created either by the Provincial Secreatary or the Director of Communications.

Records include correspondence, notes and drafts, memos, public announcements, polls, media clippings, court documents, agendas and minutes, public communications, budgetary documents, candidate biographies and supporting materials, campaign literature, strategy and messaging documents, reports, schedules, and other related materials.

整理

These records were received after being stored by the BC NDP for some time. In some cases, the Executive Secretary had reboxed and possibly reordered the files [2000-2001?]; in addition the appraising archivist had reboxed the files kept on-site, before they were received by RBSC. Elections materials were most often grouped together in boxes, suggesting that they were kept together during use and separated from daily administrative files. However, the presence of multiple creators with different file ordering tendencies intermingled in a single box also suggests that in most cases, the received order does not reflect the original order upon creation and active use.

To aid in access while preserving the received order as much as possible, these files have been grouped into subseries, most commonly by election. Where possible, multiple creators have been identified in the subseries descriptions. Large deposits that crossed multiple elections, such as the polls and candidate biographies, have been kept as received and placed into their own subseries.

Finally, files 388-18 to 388-22 and 390-17 have not been placed in a subseries, as they were received together, mostly without file folders or apparent order. Most of this material relates to the 1983 provincial election; however, due to the presence of a file from 1981, another from 1982, and yet another predominantly from 1986, it was decided to leave these materials as they were, to maintain the order received.
